Faculty Achievements in Publication Soar

At the University of Oregon Lundquist College of Business, our faculty continue to impress with distinguished honors and top industry recognition for their pioneering work.

“At the core of any great business school are exceptional and productive research faculty that advance knowledge and bring new ideas to the classroom,” noted Edward Maletis Dean Sarah E. Nutter. “The quality and caliber of faculty members at the Lundquist College of Business is exceptional, and I am amazed and humbled by the great work taking place here.”

Below are a few research and publication highlights showcasing the accomplishments of our collaborative professors during the past academic year, 2017-2018.

  • 57 Research publications
  • 46 Peer-reviewed articles accepted for publication
  • 36 Unique Lundquist College faculty authors
  • 14 Articles coauthored by Lundquist College faculty
  • 11 Books or chapters in books
  • 10 Articles coauthored with current or former Lundquist College PhD students

Notably, peer-reviewed publications in journals recognized as the most prestigious and rigorous nearly doubled from 14 in the 2016-17 academic year to 27 in the 2017-18 year.

Publications per tenure-track faculty member for 2016-17 academic year were 0.56. That number jumped to 0.84 in 2017-18. Of those, 0.33 were highest level publications in 2016-17. Publishing in those top journals increased to 0.53 in 2017-18.

For both years, we boast 100 percent doctoral student graduate academic placement. Additionally, we were able to help accelerate those outcomes by shaving the average time in the PhD program from five years to 4.83 years. Recent PhD graduate placements include Portland State University, University of Waterloo, and Shanghai Lixin University.

Successful collaborations with PhD students, coupled with our faculty’s drive for excellence, places the Lundquist College of Business in esteemed company.

“Our faculty is smaller than many of our peer institutions and the impressive publication achievements above are a clear testament to our dedication to high quality impactful research,” said Ryan Wilson, Richard W. Lindholm Professor in Taxation and the Lundquist College’s Director of Research and Doctoral Studies.

The University of Colorado Boulder Per Capita Business Journal Rankings bear this out: Oregon is ranked impressively at No. 32 for North American per-capita UTD rankings without exclusions—just after No. 31 Harvard University and before No. 33’s Carroll School of Management at Boston College.
